A Look Inside: Reston Hospital Center’s $72 Million Expansion is Underway

Reston Hospital Center has become a construction site as its $72 million expansion kicks into full swing.

The phased project, which would add more than 63,000 square feet of new space, is set to complete in 2019. The expansion adds a new patient tower, intensive care unit and more services for inpatient rehabilitation, women and children.

Construction on a new 403-space parking garage, has begun, along with the expansion of two patient care floors above the emergency room and the women and children’s services unit, according to Erin Echelmeyer, a hospital spokeswoman.

Patients seeking to enter the emergency room must enter through the hospital’s main hospital as construction continues. The previous entrance will likely reopen this summer. A temporary protective tunnel is being built for EMS staff to transport patients, Echelmeyer said

Construction cranes are not new to the 187-bed hospital, which is part of Tennessee-based health giant HCA Holdings, Inc. Between 2012 and 2015, the hospital embarked on a $40 million expansion, which included a 180,00-square-foot medical office and the addition of four operating rooms and 19 surgical recovery rooms in the surgical department.

A breakdown of the project is below:

  • Parking garage on the West Wing entrance.
  • Two patient care floors above the emergency room, including a new 24-bed Intensive Care Unit and an 18-bed Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit.
  • Expansion of the Women and Children’s Services unit, including 14 obstetric beds for high-risk patients.
  • Addition of a second lab to the cardiac services unit, expected to be complete by the summer.
  • Renovations to the main lobby and entrance, including a glass concourse.
